English Information

Our current SPaG focus is commas in lists and to separate clauses.

Commas are used to separate items in a list.  For example:

1) I like football, rugby and cricket.

The comma separates the first two items but and is used before the third item.

2) The big, hairy dog raced across the field.

The comma separates the adjectives.

Commas are also used to separate clauses if the sentence starts with a subordinate clause.

For example:

Because it is raining, I need to wear my coat.

The comma separates the subordinate clause from the main clause.

 

Make sure you know the alphabet off by heart and can order words alphabetically as this will help you use a dictionary and thesaurus more efficiently.
